I LOVE MY NEW FAMILY!!! (but more on that later…)

I just had one of those moments walking back from dinner that I want to remember. I was walking past the chapel and the sprinklers were on and covering the whole pathway. There was a girl walking behind me and she just came up next to me and asked, “Are we just going to run?” So we both laughed and then just ran through the sprinklers to the other side with all our stuff. We walked all the way to BC talking and laughing and she was awesome and amazingly nice. She was from Lebanon and I got to here a bit about her life there and what she thinks of it here, which was really cool. It was just…refreshing to run through the sprinklers and have such a genuine, nice conversation with someone I had never met. It reminded me of my favorite Gandhi quote:

“You must have faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops in the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
